When you use the divide surface tool, Revit automatically creates identical, equally sized divisions on a face.

I want to know if there is some way to individually manipulate these gridlines or divisions to create irregular patterns or

panels of different sizes. I'm using the divide surface tool to make curtain panel systems on the outside of a building,

and I dont want the panels to be arranged in a regular grid.

Most of the properties of the object that is repeated are "consumed" by the repetition, meaning that somehow its parameters become unavailable for further use after the object has been repeated. The only control possible, so far, is to use adaptive points in the original object that is going to be repeated, and relate the location of that adpative point to one of the dimensions of the object. Then, after the object is repeated, that distance can used to create variations in the object. There is a sample of this method in Zach Kron's blog.
